Re: Jim Gray article on Next Generation Databases
>> As others noted, however, these ideas have been around for a long time, e.g. MUMPS was a DB deeply integrated into an OS and programming language; Other examples of database integrated into the OS Microdata Reality (1974) -- first minicomputer to do this IBM System 38 (1978) -- ancestor of the AS/400. If I remember correctly, Microdata used a microprogrammable instruction set for the Reality. (Microcode implemented data management operators as part of the machine's instruction set.) ======== Ken North =========== www.WebServicesSummit.com www.SQLSummit.com www.GridSummit.com
